The Wonderettes are back, still pretending their best years aren’t behind them as they drown their delusions in eggnog. We’re kidding, of course, because it’s totally reasonable for grown-ass women to relive their youth at all sorts of parties. In this case, it’s at the annual Harper’s Hardware Holiday Party, where the Wonderettes are the entertainment — until Santa goes MIA. The “girls” (seriously, though, that’s what they call themselves) are the only ones who can save the party (of course!) — and they do it with the ‘60s versions of holiday hits, including “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Run, Rudolph, Run,” and “Winter Wonderland.” No, it’s not exactly believable but man, doesn’t The Winter Wonderettes sound like fun?
